Swedish air defense "passivity" is controversial

86
Sweden's self-defense capabilities are questioned by the lack of any reaction from the Swedish aviation on training attacks by Russian aviation. About this with reference to the Swedish press reports the French newsletter "TTU".


On the night from 29 to 30 in March, two Russian long-range Tu-22М3 bomber, accompanied by four Su-27 fighters, approached the Swedish airspace during the exercise. In this case, the Swedish fighter Gripen were not raised to intercept them. Instead of continuing the flight towards Kaliningrad, Russian bombers approached Sweden and made training attacks against two strategic targets on Swedish territory, but without leaving international airspace. That night there was not a single Swedish aircraft on duty.


Long-range Tu-22М3 bomber


Only two Danish F-16 fighters were sent to intercept, which were based in Lithuania as part of the NATO airspace patrol. This incident, which was kept secret, was disclosed in the publication of the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet, and then received confirmation from the General Staff of the Swedish armed forces. The question arose about the reasons for such passivity, as well as about whether Sweden has the ability to protect its sovereignty.

In its defense, Stockholm states that it did not consider it necessary to send fighters to intercept, as Russia warned Sweden about the scale of the Ladoga-2013 exercises. which involved almost 70 aircraft. “No reaction was made,” said Foreign Minister Carl Bildt. For the government of the right and the general staff in the current situation of the country is not in danger. But some Swedish politicians, including right-wing ones, nevertheless believe that in the light of Russia's efforts to modernize its armed forces, especially on the western flank, Sweden should have reacted during the Easter weekend. It was necessary to send a "signal" that would clearly demonstrate vigilance, and it would be heard by many.

Fighter JAS-39C Gripen Swedish Air Force


In recent years, Russian aviation has increased its activity, especially in the Baltic region. But according to experts, the fact of conducting a training night attack on Swedish facilities with six planes almost at the border of the Swedish airspace is a new phenomenon. This episode again led to growing doubts about the morale of the Swedish army.

    They were sent to intercept only two Danish F-16 fighters, which were based in Lithuania as part of patrolling NATO airspace.

    Only two?
    Probably as training targets? lol

      no, couples have always been used as a link since they have been established since the times of the great Patriotic war, and you should not underestimate them, as another Avax plane is aimed at the target, and f 16 is used just as small compact fast and convenient carriers for 10k large-radius missiles. they don’t have to enter into combat contact with beavers; the main role here is played by avax and missiles, and only then the pilot and fighter hi

          smart people would use such a case to train their personnel. all normal aircraft in the world do this. There are no pros who would be prevented by an extra workout with "conditional" opponents. And to yell or not to yell like a victim is the business of the Foreign Ministry, not the Ministry of Defense. So it looks like either we were overslept, or all the pilots were on weekends, on vacation or on maternity leave.

      All actions are performed that precede the launch of an anti-radar missile and the subsequent departure from a possible air defense response. In short, it’s a combat approach but without launch. Those who, as a target, usually experience very unpleasant emotions.

    All this duck about the attack on Swedish targets is not true. The planes did not enter Swedish airspace, and if they were near the border, this does not mean that they were going to attack the trackruner. Nearby objects for attack are sufficient. And the Swedish Grippen is an excellent plane.

      The Su-34 front-line bomber took part in that conflict, the 35th multi-role fighter, by the way, at the time of 2008, the Su-35 was probably in a single copy, it would be unlikely that they would send a single plane to fight, besides, there was no one with whom butting in the air, and even more so, it was certainly raw at that time (weapons, avionics)

          Especially with the use of nuclear weapons (this, by the way, is also your imagination - there is not a word about special ammunition there).

          And what is the point of such an "attack" without the use of nuclear weapons?

    Well, yes, not fools ... A two-hour flight of one F-16 costs about 20000 bucks. Better to let the bad Danes fly. The Swedes above them are probably laughing right now and are showing all kinds of gestures with their fingers. fool

    Well, firstly, did the SU -35 really participate in 08.08.08/34/35? SU-22 was the case, flew, knocked out air defense, but SU -3 did not seem to be there! And secondly, TU 450-M2 has enough weapons to work out attacks without entering the airspace, because the total area of ​​Sweden is 670 thousand kmXNUMX. or if you imagine its territory as a square - a square with a side of XNUMX km. you can attack through!) half of Europe can be attacked from a missile carrier from its territory.

    To intercept only two Danish F-16 fighters were dispatched, which were based in Lithuania as part of patrolling NATO airspace.

    Well, so that they, two against six, could intercept?
    Is that Lyuley to snatch (Or snap off)?

    Lithuania is again in all its glory. Like a mellow - and ripened here. Well, what without her?

    The Swedes are balanced, calm guys.

    And what, the Swedes did everything right. What is the point of raising planes? What for? They are more or less adequate and know that they are a damn for us. This teaching discredited NATO more than Sweden. Or maybe we agreed? ...

    In its defense, Stockholm claims that it did not consider it necessary to send fighters to intercept, as Russia warned Sweden about the scope of the Ladoga-2013 exercise.

    The Yankees like to point out to everyone, the Swedes have their own head, even though she is thinking of taking off or watching a football match. Only there is nothing to justify or the Swedes are lackey Americans. And our more take-offs and soft landings.

    Swedish politicians have always been distinguished by their ingenuity of thinking and the concomitant paranoid syndrome regarding the Russian attack. One must nevertheless inform them of military secrets: for an aircraft like TU 22M-3 there is absolutely no need to approach close to the Swedish border for attack, this can be done from almost anywhere in the Baltic Sea. Someone is beneficial to have a nearby dangerous enemy.

    Swedes are pragmatists. They fly - the teachings of the Russians (there was a warning) - well, let them fly. The main thing is not to interfere.
    Swedish journalists need to write about something - they wrote. And the French "TTU" made an elephant out of a fly (from the point of view of the Swedes).

    Maybe there comes a time when neighboring states will stop raising excitement over exercises at their borders? I welcome the behavior of the Swedish military. Their logic is simple: the Russians warned us that they would fly, let them fly. This is the logic. common sense. So we decided and went to drink beer. See how the Japanese behave when Russian pilots fly over the Sea of ​​Japan. A screech stands, as if a bomb had been thrown at them. Some nerves angry .

    That damn story teaches nothing. USSR in the first half of 1941 also hoped for a non-attack pact!
    On the other hand, it is more correct to keep silent in Sweden, Peter-1 has long taught her that !!!

    Our flyers worked out a preemptive strike on Euro-missile defense objects judging by the simulated objects. Radar warning and launcher. It is clear why the Swedes were violet, they have this stuff and have no plans to have it.

    Well, what's wrong with that? In the 90s, during the first cruises of "Peter the Great" in neutral waters, the Swedish Air Force, without any warning, conducted a series of training attacks on our ship. Result - 1 plane of the Swedish Air Force crashed.

    I recalled this!
    ... The report of the radiometrist on the work directly along the course of the Swedish coastal radar station was followed by a rude shout from the boat commander about the mental abilities of the radiometer, and the latter immediately "corrected" the report for the work of the "ship radar". Ironically, the S-363 was actually blindly following the secret Swedish fairway in skerries (the width of the fairway is 12 meters). Rattling diesels, no one found the boat (on the bridge of which were the commander, political officer, watchman) at a speed of 7,5 knots jumped at 21 hours 57 minutes on the stones of the coastal shallow near Turumsher Island. With a trim to the stern and a roll of up to 15 ° on the port side, the S-363 firmly sat down on the sandbank and attempts to lift itself off the stones by six in the morning were unsuccessful. There was no water leakage in the hull, the sonar fairing was completely broken. At dawn, at about ten o'clock in the morning, the boat was discovered by a fisherman in front of the entrance to the Swedish naval base - Karlskrona, and then a Swedish boat left the harbor. An international cold war-style scandal soon followed, accusing the boat crew of espionage. Only on November 1981, XNUMX, the boat was removed from the shallows by Swedish rescue ships and she returned to her homeland. laughing laughing
    ps The wits of the sea later called the boat "Swedish Komsomolets".

    All these calculations at the expense of the passivity of the Swedes are not for the external consumer. The Swedes knew about our flights and did not bother. And the local nationalists started a scandal to run into their own government. In short, this is not our business! It is much more interesting whether our pilots hit the training target or not!

      Good question. And a good question is often better than a good answer. And the excitement of commentators about the impotence of the Swedish air defense is somewhat exaggerated. The Swedes have very good fighters, modern ground-based and air-based radars, and they have something to shoot. Moreover, all this is mainly of Swedish design and production, which for such a rather small country is not the worst indicator of its scientific, technical and production capabilities. And the Swedes do not really want to fight. They are well fed there. Even retirees and unemployed. So there is a lot to learn from the Swedes. And the fact that they have their own "hurray patrriots" who want to "bump" with someone and wash their boots in the distant ocean, so where they are not.
